Introduction: I have been tutoring students in math for about three years now, and I am passionate about and dedicated to the students I teach. I graduated from Brigham Young University in April 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a minor in Classical Studies with a Greek Emphasis. As such, I am well-versed in math subjects ranging from fractions to calculus, and I have worked with students from as young as seven to those in their early twenties. I have also assisted multiple students with ACT test prep, particularly the mathematics section. I can analyze a student’s strengths and weaknesses and develop lessons focused on improving their understanding and fixing their learning gaps. Several of the students I have taught have dramatically improved their grades by working with me. I have seen college students improve their test scores by more than 30 points, high schoolers resurrect their entire transcript, and junior high and elementary school students grasp seemingly impossible concepts. Furthermore, after working with me for several weeks, my students have consistently reported a jump of 3 or 4 points in their ACT scores. Finally, I believe any student is capable of understanding and even enjoying math, and when hired, I take it upon myself to ensure that their self-esteem grows alongside their comfort with the subject material. Several of the students whom I have helped had previously been led to believe that they were incapable or even stupid, and I recognize that it is part of my job to change that perception of themselves, as well as their performance. A Note Regarding Covid-19: I am able to tutor both in-person as well as over Zoom. However, when in-person I do use hand sanitizer before and after every appointment, and I always use a mask. My clients have the option to wear masks too.

My daughter has been struggling with math since she started school at 5 years old and she is 14 now. Every year she would get further and further behind. Her father and I are not great at math and got to the point she was learning math that was beyond our abilities to help her. We started having Amanda tutor her a year ago and now my daughter is getting 100% on her tests and an “A” in her class. She currently wants to take honors math next year. Amanda is so amazing! I highly recommend her! She has transformed my daughter!

Amanda has helped my 16 year old son with English, Chemistry, History and Math. He has struggled this year to stay caught up yet never wanted tutors so they just didn't work out in the past. Amanda has built a relaishionship with him and he feels comfortable asking for help. Amanda has stepped up and come las minute to get late work in before deadlines were missed.

Details: High school • Arithmetic / general • 14 - 17 years old • Improve grades at school • More than once a week • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Amanda did an amazing job with my son and his classmate. They did 3 and 4 hour sessions for the summer, and caught up substantially on their math! Couldn't be happier with the level of rigor, patience, clarity, and preparedness Amanda brought to the job each day. As they've gone back to school, the two of them are easily the most prepared. They went from behind to substantially ahead. Highly recommend Amanda!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge $40/hour per student. Discount: I offer a package of an initial 5 tutoring sessions at $30 per hour. Discount: If teaching more than one student at once, the price increases by $20 per student. Fee: If I travel more than 30 miles, an additional $5 will be added to the charge. Fee: For every week after the appointment, a $10 fee will be applied to the charge if not paid.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I try to sit down with a student and both analyze the gaps in their understanding and engage them personally. Often if a student is struggling with a concept in high school math, they failed to learn another problem years before. I know how to identify and rectify these gaps.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics 3 years of tutoring experience
